{Fresh Friday}

Well Hello and Happy Friday to you!!Here's the lucky winner to the simpledaisy give-away......
Mo from MommyRD!!!!
Yeah for her:)
I tell you .... I think we could be friends! She loves fitness, good food and the all important WINE:)
You should stop over and say "hello."

Here's her comment!
"Those earings are beautiful! I would love to wine them! I am off to check out your facebook page and become a fan right now. I really, really want to win those lovely earings! :-) "

Awww...makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside....
And did you notice she put wine instead of win!! A girl after my own heart:)

I think the give-away was really fun....I am definitely going to be doing more give-away's in the future:)


and stay tuned....all your lovely comments put me right in the spirit to make lots of new simpledaisy jewelry:)

Mo please let me know what you think when you get your charming little simpledaisy earrings:)

Now...on to the eats:)
As you know the weather has givin us a few nice days recently. YEAH....
And it has really made me want to eat lighter and brighter dishes.
So in honor of the spring happiness I made a really FABULOUS....

Blackberry Basil Salad with Blackberry Vinaigrette
This salad ROCKED my face off~

So fresh and so tasty:)
For the salad.....
mixed organic baby greens
basil
goat cheese
walnuts
fresh blackberriesAll I can say is YUM....triple times five:)
For the dressing
Blackberry Vinaigrette
frozen blackberries
honey
balsamic vinegar
olive oil
thaw the blackberries and throw it all in the food processor until it becomes a dressing!
This would rock on fish too! And for the rest of my dinner....
lemon dill tilapia with roasted sweet potato slices!!
Healthy and delicious:)

OH and did you notice the wine stem on my glass?!?!?
I am having a dinner party {may favorite thing in the whole wide world to do} in May and am beginning to work on the "theme."I'll have to keep tinkering with it....but beachy spring...is sort of what i'm going with! I thought the stems would look really cute with twine wrapped around them and a little happy saying on each glass?!!?
I have done wire wrapped beads and other things before....but I thought this was pretty cute....what do you think!?!?
OK....well you have yourself a super happy weekend:)

  3. OMG, I can't believe I wrote wine instead of win. (well, maybe I can believe it...)

    So excited for the earings!

    Your salad looks beatiful, I want to try it this weekend.

    We would have so much fun if we lived near each other. working out, drinking wine and having dinner parties.

  7. What a busy and inspiring post today! You make me want to gear up for a dinner party...I have six people in mind and love your idea of little sayings attached to the wine glasses.

    I'm on it!
    Have a wonderful weekend, you fresh-and-fun blogger!

    I checked out your etsy shop even though I don't wear much jewelry...still wondering if I should do an etsy shop of my own (at your recommendation)...
